As the much-anticipated futures platform of Bakkt is launched, multiple scammers are impersonating as the company to trap investors to steal their digital assets.
A fake website – bakktlaunch.com – has recently been launched and, like any classic scams, is asking investors to participate in a crypto giveaway by sending Bitcoin and Ethereum.
The website faked the layout of Bakkt’s Medium page where the company makes all its announcements and is promoting a “Bakkt – Official ETH and BTC Giveaway.”
“We wanted to commemorate such an achievement by holding a giveaway of 5000 BTC and 10000 ETH! A special promotion for BTC and ETH users!” the fake website noted.
